Shadows in the Light
1473 years ago, there was a nation that laid claim to the Harkveil Mountains in what is now Immor. Though any records of this nation were destroyed in the great purge, many of its residence’s descendants still remain. When the Empire begun to expand into Immor, they encounter the people of the mountains; a very war driven people who had survived for the ages by killing all who got in their path. The first encounter with the Empire was one that would change their very way of life. While the empires initial intentions where that of peace and prosperity, their kind gestures were immediately turned down and soon all out war broke out between the “Empire” and the “People of the Mountains”. Though the Empire was more superior in every way by the count of their men, to the equipment they carried, they were initially no match for the brute strength and savagery of these Barbaric people and suffered countless defeats. It wasn’t long before the Empire started to panic, and change to more unconventional means of ridding themselves of this powerful enemy. In the late Third Era, the Emperor changed tactics, and employed the work of magic and machine. In 3rd Era 25, the Emperor sent the “Three Legions of the Red Banner”, a specialized group of soldiers trained in the art of Fire, Lightning, and Death. Within four years their enemy was no more, and the emperor ordered the destruction of every village, city and town in the mountains to ensure that their people would not rise again.
Now, Nearly 1473 years after their First war, the People of the Mountains have risen again to claim their independence from the empire and destroy all who would deny them their existence.
